LAUNCH: 'Singapore, Incomplete' by Cherian George

  • Mount Emily Whitehouse 11 Upper Wilkie Road Singapore, 228120 Singapore (map)

Join Ethos Books for the launch of Singapore, Incomplete by Cherian George!

As the government lays the ground for a transition to a fourth generation of leaders after the death of Lee Kuan Yew and its 2015 general election triumph, Cherian George considers the unfinished business of political liberalisation and multicultural integration in this collection of essays. 

Singapore, Incomplete by Cherian George (author of Air-Conditioned Nation) was released in October 2017 to great response. Over a month later, at least 1,000 copies have been sold to readers all over the nation and beyond.

Whether or not you've gotten your hands on his newest book, Ethos Books invite you to join them for an unforgettable dialogue with Cherian on the 9th of December, as well as a book-signing session! See you there!


Cherian George is professor of media studies at the Hong Kong Baptist University School of Communication, where he also serves as the director of the Centre for Media and Communication Research. He is the author of four other books, the latest of which is Hate Spin: The Manufacture of Religious Offense and its Threat to Democracy (MIT Press, 2016). He received his Ph.D. in Communication from Stanford University. Born and raised in Singapore, he was a journalist with The Straits Times before switching to academia. He worked at Nanyang Technological University for ten years before moving to Hong Kong in 2014.
